Since you are not busy at all and have nothing better to do with your
time, please use your telepathic abilities to just unsibscribe(sic) and
resubscribe me to the list depending on whether I'm in my office, on
holidays, working at a remote location, just don't feel like receiving
ILUG mail for a few days, or combinations of the above. I am too lazy to
verify that MY e-mail systems work (or spell-check my mails), so I feel
perfectly justified in laying the blame squarely at your door. Please
make it all better for me. I feel it only fair to warn you at this point
that if you unsubscribe me when I didn't intend you to (I will give you
no warning of my intentions, just to keep you guessing) I will be too
lazy to look in the list archives and will instead bombard you with more
whiney e-mails calling both your technical and sexual prowess (and that
of your family, pets, relatives, friends, etc.) into question.
I trust, given the importance of me being kept happy, you will be
pleased to devote an inordinate amount of your freely given personal
time to dealing with my inabilities to do any of the following:
1. Use a web interface.
2. Use a standard mail list admin interface via e-mail
3. Set up a filter to junk mails I just don't want any more.
4. Chew my own food.
P.S. On a serious note, given this mornings rant on BBC news regarding
computers being fooled into dialing expensive international or premium
rate numbers, please write to the BBC (I have) and request that they
report that this is ONLY a problem for users of Microsoft Windows - and
that there is a multitude of alternatives available. During their
coverage of the subject, they questioned what BT could do, what the
telco regulator could do, and basically managed to not even mention
Microsoft once during the entire article - never mind actually
suggesting that perhaps their shoddy security practices might be even
slightly to blame.
